Have you made a decision regarding the date? Is it September 18-21? I hope to attend.
You may be correct, but just like 'Main Street' that is probably a different 'River Road.' And they are probably all called 'Metropark.'

This mapquest is awesome. In fact, I don't even have to go there to take pictures any more, I can just get them from the aerial image... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...r/mapimage.jpg
Here are the boulders in the river http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...racer/map2.jpg

Well, I couldn't resist. I had to see what that dome looked like....

Speaking of testing the water, do you have any interest in bringing your wet plate workshop here earlier in the week as you are doing at Bill Schwab's in June? I believe Robert Puckett from near here has signed on for the June event. There seems to be a growing interest in wet plate here. Please feel free to sample interest in this thread if you are interested.
One of my silver 7x17 contact prints was juried in to the six state FAVA show going on right now in Oberlin, OH. There are several wet plate images there as well as Cyanotype, Ambrotype and some other alt processes. I am going for a second look Monday March 3rd and will try to remember to get a count. http://www.favagallery.org/Fava%20gallery.html
Are we still on for September?
Dolly and I would love to have the party, but we don't know if there is an interest. On February 25th we sent the following questionnaire to the twenty APUGers who had expressed interest in previous posts. Of twenty sent we received four back. If there is an interest please respond by PM.
Northern Ohio Gathering, Fall of 2008, Cuyahoga Valley National Park

September 18-21, 2008
Thank you for your interest in our APUG Ohio Fall 2008 Gathering. Please take a moment to give some information about yourself so Dolly and I have a better understanding of who will be our guests and how we can make it a great time. We promise not to use this information for any other purpose.
Name (s) coming
Email where we can send updates
Cell phone if you will have it with you so we can contact each other during the event.
Will you be camping on our property? We will have to rent a porta potty and split the costs or there is the woods.
Would you like us to explore near by hotels that might give a group discount?
Which nights do you think you will be here?
Of the photographic interests described what are your priorities so we can plan outings?
We will have a show and tell of any work you wish to bring
Is there a workshop or presentation you would like to offer?
Emergency contact we hope not to need?
Thanks for giving us your thoughts. We are looking forward to your visit.

How long an event will this be? Basically you are welcome for what time you can spend. Tentatively we plan to welcome people at our house every morning around 9 AM . Some may want to join others, or go off in their own direction. We can meet again around 5 PM to look at prints, go to dinner and tell stories about our adventures.
We can start that process Wednesday morning and go through Sunday. September 17-21, 2008 I can show those that want some off the sights mentioned earlier or just give directions if you want to go off on your own. Thursday I am suggesting we shoot in the Akron area (Cascade Locks, Akron Art Museum, etc) and end up at the Greek Festival for dinner. From there on we can make it up based on what of the long list of things mentioned you want to do. If anyone was thinking of starting earlier than Wednesday, let me know your thoughts. I am sure we can work something out.
You all come.
